Guilty Pleasure Movies

These movies are my version of comfort food. The list of feel better, nothing on TV, I can talk with every line movies.
While I was writing the list over the course of a few days, It just got longer and longer. And maybe it's not even finished yet and another movie pops into my head, but here it goes. My (un)shaming list of guilty pleasure movies:
I first saw this movie in theaters and fell in love. Julianne Hough is adorable and the movie is thrilling, romantic and has a major surprise at the end.
This movie made it to my ultimate "Best Back To School Movies" and is one of my faves since high school.
The characters, all the famous actors the story lines getting together, Bradley Cooper with Scarlett Johansson, the irritation you feel when the girl answers the phone under the shower, Bradley & Scarlett... This is the movie a girlfriend and I put on when there's nothing better to see and we can actually along with most lines. LOVE this movie.
This one might not be so well known, but it's absolutely one of my favorites and the main part of that is the music. I grew up with this movie and with the music of Michael Nyman. I've heard the music 100x more than I've seen the movie, but they compliment each other. Chances are, that you do know some of the music, if you haven't seen the movie. Please go see it!
Classic, not much explaining to do here! I remember I saw the movie with my mom and brother in the theaters and when we came out, I told my mom it was my favorite movie ever!
Another movie I know many lines to. Love that during the movie he accidentally invents everything (even the smiley!) and one of the most known movie quotes ever: "Live is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you gonna get." With the accent of course!
Not only is Tom Hanks one of my favorite actors (see above) but this movie is just so easy to see and just doesn't seem to get tiring of ever! "F-O-X!"
I wrote that it was a guilty pleasure list right? A true chick-flick movie about a girl that turns from a loser into a pretty princes. Ok ok, sounds horrible, but can't get enough yet. ;-)
Must see movie every year around Christmas time. Everything is just 'right' in this movie. Doesn't it make you want to go to England to live in one of those cottages?! Ok, maybe just for one weekend, or two, if it's with Jude Law!
Besides that it's my favorite Christmas movie, it's one of my all time favorites as well. Love all the storylines and how they fall together. And the "All You Need Is Love" serenade, who doesn't want that on their wedding?
An oldie, but a goodie. Love the 'Girl Power' message this movie sends. Favorite part? That the four women sing "You Don't Own Me" at the end of the movie. Thanks to mom for introducing me to this movie many years ago.
Besides the heartwarming storyline, the accents of Gerard Butler and Harry Connick Jr. play a major part of me loving this movie. :) Another piece I like of this movie? That they play "Fairytale of New York" just one of my favorite Christmas songs!
